The eyes, they say, are the windows to the soul,…
Dealing with the drama that comes along with issues surrounding your eye area can be a real pain in the behind, as most of us well know. Some of these issues will be discussed below, and we will go on to detail how they occur as well. Let’s take a closer look at some of the most common eye area issues and how you can alleviate or avoid them.
Puffy eyes can be caused by a number of things, such as crying, allergies, sickness, fluid retention, or stress. They can also be caused by consuming a poor diet. To treat puffy eyes, you can alleviate the condition by applying a cool compress to the eye area while you relax for about 10 minutes. You could also use cucumber slices for a refreshing feeling, for about 10 minutes as well. You can rinse the face with cool water to stimulate the inflammation to cease. Lastly, you can drink water to try to flush out your system if the puffy eyes are related to a poor diet or sickness.
Dark circles underneath the eyes can be very annoying for many women to deal with on a daily basis. Some women have them by genetics, in which case there isn’t much that can be done to get rid of them. On the upside, they can be hidden with color correcting concealers and foundation applications. For those who do not gain dark under eye circles because of a genetic occurrence, there are other causes, such as dehydration, lack of sleep, poor diet, stress, and eye strain. To treat dark under eye circles, you can use an eye serum which is applied to the dark circles themselves and contain skin brightening properties, or you can opt for an eye cream with Vitamin K to revitalize the area.
Reddened eyes can be caused by a multitude of things, from lack of sleep, allergens to products or irritation from products, seasonal allergies, dry eyes, sickness, and infection. Red eyes may easily be treated with over the counter eye drops, or you may need to rinse the eyes with water if they are extremely irritated. Another option for those with product allergens is to completely stop the use of the products in question, and choose other products instead. Red eyes caused by lack of sleep would require the person to obtain more rest, and develop a sleep schedule if possible. Red eyes caused from a temporary illness will likely improve as your overall condition improves. Infections which cause red eyes will need to be treated by your doctor with antibiotic eye drops or creams, or other methods of treatment. If you’re dealing with red eyes which won’t go away, it’s best to consult your doctor and make an appointment to be seen in their office for treatment.
There are many other eye conditions and conditions surrounding the area of the eye, but these are the top three most common. If you have any concerns about the skin around your eyes or your actual eyes themselves, your best course of action is to consult with your doctor to receive treatment.
